Statewide: The Coronavirus In Illinois - One Year Later
This past week marked the anniversary of the initial COVID-19 diagnosis in the state. The patient was in the Chicago area.
As we note one year since the pandemic's arrival in Illinois, we hear from a doctor who helped treat those first cases. We'll also listen to the state's Public Health Director, Dr. Engozi Ezike, about what we've learned and what is still to be determined.
We'll also get an in-depth look at why some say college campus police forces should be abolished. Take a listen to this episode of Statewide.
* Maureen McKinney details a measure state lawmakers approved that would end the use of cash bail in Illinois.
